Children's Home Learning Week 9

  Week 9   

Hello and welcome to week 9.

It was great to see your lovely smiley faces on Zoom this morning. You always amaze me with your news and the activities that you show and tell me about. If you have not joined us before then please attend a meeting and see your friends.  Don't forget to try our Zoom challenge and bring your photos to our next meeting (Details on Zoom Challenges icon on Year 2 home page, next to the Home Learning weekly icons).

Congratulations to  5 members of our class for their success in last weeks

Whole school Sumdog competition. Excellent work guys.

1st place Luzanne,  2nd place Emily,  3rd  place Dafina,

7th place Millie, 10th place Louie.

A fantastic achievement to have 5 people in class 2 in the top 10 places for the whole school. There is another competition starting on Monday 18th, keep playing guys and let us see who can make the  top places in this weeks competition. 

Take a look at the assemblies icon on the RE page,  the first focuses on hope, the second focuses on wellbeing and has a sing-a-long with the West end cast of Disney's Lion King and the third one focuses on discovery and has an interview with astronaut Helen Sharman .

How about learning to sign and sing the song 'What makes a family?'  (PSHE icon)  Maybe your whole family could join in and you could record some of the song and send it in to put on our webpage.

Learn about Africa, Asia  and Australia (Geography icon) and if you are interested in sport, look at our History page, learn about famous sporty people and read the

'I can be sporty' Ebook.  

It was lovely today to hear some of you read to us on Zoom, keep up the reading everyone, free Ebooks on if you cannot find anything to read at home.

I look forward to receiving your home learning this week.

You brighten my day.

Take care

Mrs Barber

P.S. Don't forget Elmer Day on Saturday, see resources on our Home learning by subject home page.
